About this Cocktail

I've been playing around with Black Manhattan variations a lot lately and decided to try one with gin. This is essentially a Black Manhattan vs a Martinez.

  • 2 oz Gin
  • 1 oz Averna Amaro
  • 1/4 oz Punt e Mes
  • 1/4 oz Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur
  • Two dashes Orange Bitters
  • Three dashes Chocolate Bitters
  • One dash Angostura Bitters
  • Lemon peel

Combine in shaker filled with cracked ice. Stir. Strain into coupe. Express lemon peel and use as garnish.

Note: I've used Bombay Dry and Plymouth. Both are great but I prefer the smoothness of Plymouth.

Variation: reduce the Averna and add 1/4 oz Fernet for extra darkness and digestif wonderfulness.
